Best NFL player prop for the Week 2 late slate: Cook cooks Cowboys
It’s all about having bullets left in the chamber after the 1:00 pm ET games on Sundays. There’s nothing better than knowing for a fact that you still have more in the tank after the early games. I’ve asked everyone I know and they all said that’s true. This week we have a great one and it’s hidden in the Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Chargers line. It’s the perfect NFL player prop to add to any card.

Jared Cook over 34.5 receiving yards (-110)
Line available at DraftKings at time of publishing.
As of Thursday we are getting the same number at DraftKings and BetMGM. FanDuel is nowhere to be found in the NFL player prop game at the moment, but when they get involved I bet they hand out the same number–probably at the same price, too, but we will have to wait and see.
Jared Cook was a pretty underrated signing this offseason. The guy has seemingly played for every team in the NFL but at 34, he still looks to have gas in the tank. The Chargers know it, too, because he was targeted 8 times. He was able to turn those targets into 5 catches for 56 yards in Los Angeles’ 20-16 victory.
No matter what, in order for Cook to go off we will need game script to go our way. Luckily, the Chargers are hosting a team that is likely to put points on the board in the Dallas Cowboys. On top of that, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers proved that the tight end can do damage against Dallas; Bucs tight ends combined for a 8-90-2 line. Once the back and forth starts happening, we can expect Cook to be involved and go over his yardage number.
